Escape from L.A... . and Joe Biden

It doesn't matter who wins on Tuesday, America is in for big trouble.

If it's Joe Biden, the Democrat Party's street gangs will celebrate by rioting in the streets.

If Donald Trump wins re-election, Biden's supporters will be so enraged they'll riot, loot and burn everything they can - and the liberal media will say they had every right to express their anger.

I live in Los Angeles, which government law-and-order experts say is not likely to riot and burn because of next week's presidential election results.

But I'm taking no chances. Here they riot and loot when the Dodgers win the World Series, so I don't plan to be anywhere near my home on Nov. 3.

I'm hiring a guard for my house and on Election Day morning my family and I will get out of town.

I'm not revealing where we'll go, but I don't plan to come back till the following week, when most of the rioting, torching and shooting should be over.

If all this sounds paranoid to you, it's because somehow you've failed to notice that in the last half year our country has gone crazy, and gone to Hell.

I'm not blaming Donald Trump for the country's dangerous craziness. I'm blaming social media and the deranged, dishonest mainstream liberal media in general because of the way they've ginned up hatred for him and protected corrupt and senile Joe Biden.

For the last 20 years everyone clamored for a businessman to become president and drain the Washington swamp of the creatures who've been wrecking the country with their bad laws, high taxes and endless wars in the Middle East.

Then when the country elected a businessman president, the political class in Washington couldn't handle it.

Now the D.C. "elites" and the media pundits think a lifetime political hack who has been living in the swamp for half a century is going to fix everything?

Biden's going to control COVID-19? Really?What's he going to do that Trump and his administration hasn't already done?

New therapeutics and tests are here already. A vaccine is on its way. Other than destroy the economy with another crippling lockdown and a national mask mandate, Biden has nothing to offer.

I fear for what might happen on the streets of L.A. next week if Trump wins, but I'm lucky. I can afford to take my family out of town. Most people can't.

No big city in the country run by Democrats is safe from rioting and violence. Their mayors and governors don't lead. They tell police to watch looters not stop them.

As usual, the poorest people in cities will become the main victims of mob violence and the failure of police and local government to protect them, their property and their businesses.

If I weren't able to leave town, I'd sure as heck make sure I was well-armed on Election Night.

I'd want to be ready to defend my family, because once the rioting starts you never know where it's going to end. I don't want it ending at my front door.

I'm not going to predict the results of the election. With all the mail-in voting and delayed vote counts in key states like Pennsylvania, we might still be wondering who the winner is three weeks from now.

But my prayer is that Trump wins big. No matter what I think of his tweets or his personality, my prayer is that Joe Biden, his leftwing puppet-masters and his dishonest allies in the media are shocked and humiliated once again.
